- A South African man shared his frustration with the ANC and SARS to Twitter recently
- Sipho Mbanjwa spoke about working 3 jobs at one point in his life but all his extra money was taxed by SARS
- Sipho alleged that the money was looted by the ANC and was backed up by many South Africans who shared in his frustration
A local man shared his tax woes with his Twitter followers and many felt that they could relate in more ways than one. Sipho Mbanjwa shared that at one time he was working three jobs but all his extra cash went to SARS.
Sipho went on to say that the harder he worked the more money was taxed. He said people are taxed "only for the ANC to loot all that money." His tweet struck a nerve with many South African tweeps.
A lot of tweeps shared their stories about being taxed more the harder they work and blamed the ANC for alleged corruption. Sipho's tweet gained over 1 500 likes on the social networking site, which clearly shows how many Saffas are in agreement with him.
Take a look at his tweet below:
These are just a few of the responses left under his tweet:
"The painful part is when the ANC thieves blunder our taxes. Your yourself to near death and 40c of every Rand you earn is taken by SARS and takes an additional 15c of the balance when shopping. If you are lucky to pinch some savings SARS takes a cut on interest earned. We are slaves."
"The social contract has been broken. In exchange for your tax, you should get decent roads, infrastructure, schooling, a functional police force etc. We are all so outraged because we get very little in return for HUGE tax. Pit toilets still exist!"
In other trending news, Briefly.co.za earlier reported on a video of a visibly drunk cop that left a bad taste in the mouths of many South Africans. In the clip, that was shared by @MondliBrianZum1 on Twitter, the drunk cop can be seen sitting behind the wheel of his police van while speaking to locals who seem to be complaining about something.
The clip was soon retweeted by Herman Mashaba who shared in the disappointment of many South Africans who couldn't believe the cop's disgraceful behaviour. He also called on police officers to stop finding themselves embroiled in such scandalous situations.
"I am making a special appeal to our law enforcement officers to fight this evil that is tarnishing their entire profession. Not all police officers are like this, but your silence will ultimately affect you as well. That would be a sad day," he commented on the clip."
